No Plugin Connection (win7/Chrome)

I just installed the plugin and tried to start using Arduino Create. I get the “No Plugin Connection. Uploading is disabled until you reconnect.” message at the top of my Create session. I have the icon in the taskbar. It is green. I can pause it, I can kill it, I can restart it. It doesn’t seem to connect to my browser.

I’m doing this on a school computer (I’m a teacher) that is managed by central IT, so I wonder if some of their security policies are interfering.


Hi @lewistp this is probably because you are not the administrator of the PC :frowning:
Can you ask central IT to install it for you? Do you think this could be a problem in school environments?

Thank you so much for your feedback!

Hello Lewis,

I'm using Chrome with Windows 7 as well. For some reason I had this issue at first but as soon as i re-downloaded it everything worked perfectly.

Best of luck!
